What metals does Oxbow use?
Brass & Bronze:
Most of our cast pieces are made with brass and bronze. These metals closely emulate gold at a fraction of a cost, and are great to withstand everyday wear. Brass and bronze will oxidize with wear. The green you may see on your finger from the copper alloy in brass and bronze and is very common. See below for cleaning instructions.
Gold filled is a layer of gold that is bonded to a base metal. Unlike gold plating, the gold will not rub or wear off in time. We use gold filled chains for most of our pendants, because it withstands everyday wear. Additionally, earring posts and studs maybe gold-filled, because it is an excellent material for sensitive skin.
Our earring posts and back are sterling silver. Sterling silver is great for sensitive ears.
10K & 14K Gold:
Our fine pieces are made with either 10K or 14K recycled gold. See below for cleaning instructions.
Oxbow uses a variety of gemstones, please see listing for more information.
